Because she now says it wasn’t in fact murder because she considered him a threat at the time (ergo, she actually unlawfully entered his home; shot him to death, and now argues that he was the threat in his own home.). As the weekend kicked off, Guyger formally filed an appeal to have her murder conviction lessened on grounds that it was justified.

You can’t make this up.

“Her mistaken belief negated the culpability for murder because although she intentionally and knowingly caused Jean’s death, she had the right to act in deadly force in self-defense.” reads a filing from her lawyers.

In 2018, Guyger illegally entered Botham Jean’s apartment having mistook it for her own. There, she opened on Jean despite the fact that it wasn’t actually her apartment and he ha actually been sitting on his couch.

CNN reports that her legal team is now looking to have said sentence reduced to criminally negligent homicide.
